You know he had to die..
It seems like they were having some sound problems that were slowing them down also the crowd seems to be somewhat oblivious that they have the good fortune of seeing the Grateful Dead in later 1968.
Garcia is set on Morning Dew but we have to wait until later in the evening.
It seems like they get cooking somewhere in the Other One but hey a Dark Star>Stephen>11 jam>Death Don't is not a bad intro for a newly turned on College Crowd.
I can really hear Garcia's guitar work---occasionally I pick up some Organ or Phil and the Drummers but mainly it is some blistering licks from Garcia.
Nice mellow show with little audience pressure to put on a 'good' show so they just go for it and jam.
Not much Pigpen here but somebody commented there is a missing Lovelight.
Mainly this seemed like a night they just wanted to cut loose and play their instruments.
(also nice lead vocals)
We don't have the entire show but what we do have is pretty cool indeed. ;) R-O-S-E-mary for a Catholic College,,, yeah the Dead had it under control!
A really laid back BID YOU GOODNIGHT

Awesome. In this era (late '67 - early '69), the Dead started out awesome and just kept getting better. The southeastern audience got the most outrageous show you could get on that night. What a peak! The playing here has a subtlety that ranks as mind-blowing even by '68 standards.

When did this show surface?? I never heard a live Rosemary before---very cool.

A rare live performance of Rosemary is the highlight (for me) of this show. It is fairly quiet, but I have never heard another live version of it. The rest of the show is great, probably just to freak out the mid-westerners who were probably quite taken aback by the crew from San Fran! Bellarmine isn't a very large school to begin with, so I wouldn't doubt that there were fewer than 500 people attending, I may be wrong. The recording itself is pretty good for '68, but the unique playing of Rosemary makes it worth having!
